July 7, 2008
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford Athletics and Learfield Sports announced today former Stanford quarterback Todd Husak has been added to the football broadcast team as a color analyst for the 2008 season. He will join play-by-play announcer Dave Flemming on all 12 regular season broadcasts on AM 860 KTRB.
Husak, who gained broadcast experience last year as a color analyst for Fox Sports, enjoyed a stellar career at Stanford from 1996-99. A two-year starter, he ranks as the school's fifth all-time leading passer with 6,564 yards and also ranks in the Top 10 in career touchdown passes (5th-41) and total offense (5th-6,428). As a senior in 1999, he earned first team All-Pac-10 Conference honors after completing 176-of-308 passes for 2,688 yards and 18 touchdowns, helping Stanford to the Pac-10 title and a Rose Bowl appearance. In his first year as a full-time starter in 1998, Husak completed 233-of-447 passes for 3,092 yards and 17 touchdowns. The passing yardage ranks third on Stanford's all-time single-season list. Husak set Stanford's single-game passing record against Oregon State in 1998 when he completed 26-of-48 passes for a school-record 450 yards.
A sixth round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2000, he played five seasons in the NFL with the Redskins (2000), Denver Broncos (2001), New York Jets (2002-03) and Cleveland Browns (2004) before retiring.
'I am thrilled to be involved with the Stanford football program again,' said Husak. 'Hopefully my experience as a player and an alum will help me provide colorful and insightful analysis.'
